Reebok is no stranger to horror collabs. Earlier this year the brand celebrated Alien Day with a collaboration. Getting into the Halloween spirit, the brand has dropped the Ghostbusters x Reebok collection.
There’s something brewing. Something absurd and otherworldly. Reebok is ready to get you prepared for the spooky season. In partnership with Sony Pictures, Reebok has announced a Halloween-themed collection, which includes apparel and sneakers.
The Ghostbusters X Reebok brings with it two silhouettes as part of the collaboration. This includes the Ghost Smashers sneakers, as well as the Classic Leather, themed with Ghostbusters branding.
Celebrating the classic horror film, which launched 36 years ago, the throwback sneakers were designed to match the various aspects of the film. The Ghost Smashers sneaker takes its inspiration from the iconic jumpsuits.
Elements from the film the proton pack, complete with tubes and the likes. The faux proton pack is detachable and clips onto the heel and ties in with the Reebok Pump technology. There are also several other tie-ins including caution taping, logos and other signage to bring the piece together.
The Classic Leather is a more reserved item, but still filled with all the Ghostbusters insignia. This includes the Reebok logo remixed to resemble the Ghostbusters font. Other items including caution tape on the heel, as well as the words “Ready to Believe You” on the heel tab. The Ghostbusters logo is featured prominently on the tongue with the text “Don’t cross the streams” on the insole.
The tie-ins are even extended to the shoebox, which is meant to resemble the trap box. The apparel features a mix of tees with graphics from the film, as well as the iconic brown Ghostbusters jumpsuit.
Show ghosts who is boss with the Ghostbusters x Reebok collection. The drop is set for release on 31 October 2020, and will be available online at reebok.co.za as well as selected Reebok Concept Stores.
